Summary by the author: Sometime it's frightening, how easily these people from Earth face down nightmares and conquer them.
Why This Must Be Read:
This is a tag to "The Shrine", covering the hours after the team gets back from Talos, seen from (a great!) Teyla's POV. It's a marvelous completion to the episode that digs deep into the emotional layer which the episode itself can't afford the luxury to show in its small 43 minutes-window on screen.
The team is perfectly in character, spot-on voices (especially John's), insightful, a writing style that paints vivid pictures - I could virtually see everything in my mind. I love this one.
